Mind maps are tools which help you think and learn. This module describes how to do a mind map and most of the sections are organised into areas of university study where students have found mind maps useful.
Often you will find a mind map in a section and you will be able to click on various parts of it to discover just how the mind map will help you. Other sections in the module contain actual samples of student mind maps.
The information in this module has been adapted from the work of Tony Buzan and others who have promoted mind mapping as a learning and thinking tool. For a full explanation of the mind mapping technique see Buzan, T. (1991). The mind map book . New York: Penguin.
The following video shows Tony Buzan describing the power of mind mapping.
